Warning this post may* contain traces of hopes, dreams, gluten and steak… plenty of steak in fact I would go as far to say as a steak sandwich worth getting out of bed for. For those wondering what the * was all about, well its my way of saying you can bet your life this post will contain the following… without such a long sentence… I guess it doesn’t really work that well when you have to explain yourself. Anyway let’s continue.
Again it’s been ages. All I can say is my bad. I got lost in my own little world for a while there, wasn’t sure which way was left, which way was right, hell I’m not even sure I figured that out, but for the first time in a while I feel like I’m falling down the right rabbit hole. I could turn this post into an outlet for the voices in my head, but I’ll spare you all the pain. Let’s talk food.
Food makes the world go round… the end… Ok, fair call, that might have been a little too brief. Before we get to the super simple, yet delicously juicy steak sandwich you all came here for, let me steal a minute of your time. I’ve decided to start sharing my love of what little food knowledge I have in one on one cooking lessons. I come to you, we cook, we chat and I show you what real yet simple cooking is all about (we can drink too… just saying). Whether you’ve just moved out of home, or your flat mate who did all the cooking has gone awol, I’m here to help and to show you the basics. If you’re interested in finding out more, either contact me through this site, or head over to Let’s Cook It ( a friend of mine has already told me it is riddled with mistakes… but it is a work in progress so be nice). I’m super flexible and will help you learn what ever it is you want to learn. I should probably point out that unless you’re buying the airfare I’m currently servicing from Mandurah to Success (in Western Australia). If you live in the Perth area but outside the above, get in touch anyway and we will see what we can see.
Enough chit chat. Steaks don’t need to be be fancy to be amazing, a little oil, a little salt and a little love sandwiched between two buns is all you need. Get to it.
- 2 rump steaks - about the size of your bread... unless you like overflow.
- 4 rashers of bacon
- 2 big rolls of whatever your favourite bread might be
- 1 x tomato sliced
- 1 small handful of lettuce leaves
- 4 slices of cheese
- 2 pickles, sliced length ways
- 1 splash of oil.
- BBQ sauce
- Pre heat you bbq.
- While you wait for your bbq to head, massage a little oil and salt into your steaks to get the ready for their big day.
- If you still have time, then slice up your salad for so there is no delay when it comes to eating time.
- Once your bbq is hot, cook your steaks for 3-4 minutes each side for a medium rare steak. Obviously leave it on longer if you want it dead. Throw your bacon on at the same time and cook to your liking.
- Allow your steaks to rest for half the total cooking time (for example if you cooked them 4 minutes each side, that makes 8, so let the rest for 4). This is an important step as it keeps your steak juicy. While its resting top with the cheese so it starts to melt.
- Once you're steak has rested, assemble and dig in. Wait for nobody.
